Halibut Tacos with Mango Salsa & Lime Crema

Fresh halibut tacos with crisp cabbage, cooling lime crema, and bright mango salsa with avocado, cilantro, and red onions, all held together by a perfectly steamed corn tortilla and topped with hot sauce.

Yields: Serves 4



In a small bowl, stir together the sour cream, lime juice, milk, taco seasoning, and hot sauce until smooth. Season to taste and add more milk as needed until the crema can be drizzled. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, gently stir together the mango, avocado, red onion, cilantro, and lime. Season to taste and set aside.

Pat the halibut fillets dry with paper towels. Season the fillets generously on both sides with taco seasoning and salt. Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Swirl with avocado or canola oil. Sear the halibut until cooked medium to medium-well (being careful not to overcook and dry out the halibut). Cooking time will depend on the thickness of your fillets (mine were thinner and only required 3 minutes per side). Remove the halibut from the heat and break the fish into large flakes.

To assemble the tacos: place a steamed corn tortilla on a plate. Top with flaked halibut, followed by a handful of cabbage, a drizzle of lime crema, and a spoonful of mango salsa. Serve with Tapatio hot sauce and serve promptly.
